Facebook’s new dedicated video app for TVs — which the company announced a few weeks ago — has officially launched on Samsung smart TVs today, as noted by VentureBeat. The app is available on any Samsung smart TV from 2015, 2016, or 2017, and can be accessed by downloading it through the Samsung Smart Hub.

The new app speaks to Facebook’s larger ambitions when it comes to video, with users able to view content shared by friends, posted by pages they follow, the top-streamed videos from Facebook Live. To that end, you’ll need a Facebook account to actually view content through the app.

Along with the Samsung Smart TV launch today, Facebook previously announced that the app would be coming to Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV, although there’s still no timetable for when that will happen.
